HELLLOOOOO fellow runners!
Today marks the second run after a month long hiatus. On Saturday I was able to hit a run for 3.5km at a 5.26km/min pace for my first run back. It felt very good, but I definitely could sense the struggle. My fatigue was setting in during the run so I still have a lot of catching up to do in terms of fitness and hitting longer distances. My hip did not hurt so I am very happy about that although it was a very short run.
Then today, I ran my second run and it was a little longer than the first one. We hit a 5.02km run at a 5.10min/km pace. For the whole run I felt pretty good, little tired during the last km which to me makes sense since I have not been running for so long. I just need to build up my miles. Definitely enjoyed being outside especially on a nice sunny day at a high of 19 degrees Celsius. By the end of the run my right hip did feel a bit sore so I may try to keep the runs around 5km for now and make sure I am just doing 2-3 runs a week at a slower pace until I feel confident enough to bring it up. Feels great to be back on the trails and I did the run in my Clifton 6’s, smooth ride with a very comfortable landing on the pavement.
As always thank you for reading and I hope everyone is still staying active during the quarantine. If you are bored and wanna try something different I recommend cold baths its very different and will shock your brain.
Stay happy, Stay healthy and Keep breathing
